At Yateley School, we are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our students whatever their needs or abilities.
This teaching group was first run in September 2010, and has been a successful addition to our standard curriculum arrangements for Year 7 students.
Gifted and Talented
The Gifted and Talented Programme is an ever growing and developing one and provides exciting opportunities for students across all year groups.
Once students arrive in school, they all undertake a range of standardised assessments to establish their strengths and possible areas of difficulty.
The department has a flexible approach towards the provision that we make for students with SEND, with a view to creating long-term independence.
The Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools for every child who has received Free School Meals in the last six years. We also receive additional money for children in local authority care, adopted under certain circumstances and for children who have a parent in the Armed Forces. Pupil Premium information can be found on our policies page.
The form tutor, working with the Head of House and Assistant Head of House is responsible for all matters concerning the care of your child and you should, in the first instance, contact him/her.
Yateley School’s Student Support Department is led by the Head of Learning Support, Mrs Goredema; other departmental staff include a part-time specialist teacher, an administrator, 11 full time equivalent Student Support Assistants (SSAs) and Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs) and a full time ELSA (Emotional, Literacy Support Assistant).

In addition, we undertake follow up visits to discuss individual students in more detail and hold additional transition sessions for some more vulnerable students.
